Frozen

 

Frozen Broadway

 

This has been a long time coming, but Frozen is finally making its way to Broadway. Inspired by Disney’s smash hit movie, the show will let fans relive the heart-warming story as it comes to life on stage. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for the kids (and big kids!) to sing along to classic hits like ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ and of course ‘Let it Go’, but there’s also going to be a host of new songs, created especially for this dazzling Broadway production. In fact, there will be twice as many songs as there are in the movie!

As well as sisters Anna and Elsa, you can expect to see plenty of familiar faces like Kristoff, Sven and the adorable Olaf. Admire the stunning sets, beautiful costumes and mesmerising dance routines, as you become immersed into this classic story.

Previews for this exciting new Broadway show will begin on 22nd February, but you can book tickets now. Be quick though, as they're already selling out fast!

 

The Lion King

 

The Lion King Broadway

 

This classic Broadway show is arguably one of the most famous of all time, dazzling over 90 million audience members worldwide to date. It also holds the record for being the 3rd longest running Broadway show and has won 70 major theatre awards internationally. If that didn’t sound impressive enough, wait until you see it!

This production is truly breath-taking. Watch in awe as the theatre is turned into the African savannah with animals roaming through the aisles- some standing at 18-feet tall. The famous Disney tale of a young cub destined to be king is set against a backdrop of vibrant sets and iconic music. You’ll hear songs that you instantly recognise like ‘Circle of Life’, ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ and ‘I Just Can’t Wait to be King’.

 

School of Rock

Prepare to be amazed as the cast of children start rocking out, playing the guitar, drums and bass live right before your eyes! As well as all the original songs from the movie, there’s 14 brand new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber that complete this epic score. It’s not just rock though, this Broadway show is packed with plenty of humour and even a surprise love story.
